Biography

Jane Eastwood graduated from Cambridge University Veterinary School in 1984 and has worked in many aspects of veterinary work since then. After a 3 year period spent in mixed practice she moved to a large small animal practice and began to pursue further qualifications initially in diagnostic imaging. She returned to the veterinary School in Cambridge to work exclusively in the imaging department there and subsequently was awarded the RCVS Diploma in Veterinary Radiology in 1992. After a 3 month period working at Murdoch Veterinary School in Western Australia doing just diagnostic imaging, Jane returned to small animal practice in the UK and pursued her interest in small animal medicine while also heading the clinical team of a small animal practice. After completing a training period at a specialist referral practice in Hitchin she was successful in the required examinations and was awarded the RCVS Diploma in Small Animal Medicine in 2003. In 2005 Jane moved to take up a clinical track lectureship at the Royal Veterinary College where she was heavily involved in final year student rotation teaching, resident and intern training and she was head of the small animal medicine clinical service. In 2009 Jane moved to the Midlands to be part of a new multidisciplinary referral centre opening in a large purpose built facility. The challenge of establishing a new small animal medicine service was exciting but student contact was limited to students on their extra mural studies placements. In order to become more involved with student teaching again Jane took up a position as an Associate Professor in Small Animal Medicine at the University of Nottingham School of Veterinary Medicine and Science in September 2014. Jane also works part time for the British Small Animal veterinary Association in their postgraduate education programme.
